A table lamp by Yiannis Ghikas directs light downwards as well as upwards using a clever directional addition to the lampshade.

The powder coated metal lamp has a semi-spherical shade with a smaller adjustable shade at the top that can direct light elsewhere.

Says Ghikas, "Once upon a time there was a lamp called Ordinary. One day, it contracted a parasite that began leaching light, sending it to places that Ordinary couldn't even imagine. Since that day, Ordinary and its parasite friend lived happily ever after."
